It's relatively easy to synchronize a Document Library with your PC. Simply navigate to the appropriate location in SharePoint Online, and click the big Sync link at the top of the screen. SharePoint will then install the appropriate OneDrive for Business agent for your device, and download all the flies to your local machine and establish the ongoing sync. Maintaining that sync, however, is not as simple. You’ll know if the sync is broken because the dark blue cloud icon in your system tray will have a red “x” on it. Right clicking on this icon will allow you to see the sync errors, which should list all the files that aren’t communicating properly. Here are some steps I usually take to try to resolve the issues.
There is a new sync client (not groove.exe) based on Microsoft’s much more robust OneDrive sync engine (which confusingly has nothing to do with OneDrive for Business). It’s currently in beta mode, and has only been released to a select group for testing. Hopefully, this will eliminate a lot of the current sync issues SharePoint users are experiencing. And this option will work in Windows 7 and Windows 10 when it becomes available, but not Windows 8.1 because of the way OneDrive integrated with that Operating System.
